  • Smithton Standards for Excellence

    Posted by Charles Hoover at 1/4/2017


    Smithton Standards of Excellence

    As we move into the second semester of the 2016-17 school year, it is important to remind our students of school expectations.  As the school year comes to a close in May, the following standards will be used to identify students who will be able to participate in non-academic “fun” events.  All end of the year events are considered a celebration of the hard work and accomplishments of our students.  The school’s administration and faculty are committed to help and support all students in meeting these expectations.

    Attendance: 90% attendance rate (with possible exceptions) using the current semester data.

    Discipline: No major office referrals. Chronic buddy and/or recovery room visits may also be considered.

    Achievement: No failing grades on the most recent Individual Progress Report (IPR).  There is an opportunity for students to bring their grade to passing prior to predetermined date of an event in order for the student to be eligible for an event.

    This information will be shared with students on a regular basis.  Their advisory teacher will be available to respond to student questions and support a student’s progress.

    2. Vomiting with associated signs of illness
    3. Diarrhea
    4. Unusual or unexplained rash
    5. Persistent cough
    6. Ongoing symptoms of discomfort or immobility from an injury
